Kermit Lynch's Beguiling Beaujolais

Kermit Lynch’s name has become synonymous with discovering and importing authentic French wines that express their local terroir. He has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers that he has won two James Beard awards and was knighted by the French government with their prestigious “Legion d’Honneur.” This week we will taste through Lynch's Cru Beaujolais, the hidden gem in the wine world! These are some of the best values in red wine that you can find right now. Cru Beaujolais is seriously well-made, balanced, food-friendly, delicious, and perfect for your Turkey Day festivities.

A Glorious Harvest of German Rieslings

Riesling is all about mouth-wateringly fresh flavors, ethereal delicacy, vibrant minerality and most of all, precision and balance. We have selected a dynamic range of Rieslings, produced by top historical estates from some of Germany’s best vineyards in the Mosel and Rheingau regions. Harvesting the Riesling at different levels of ripeness creates an impressive variety of wine styles; some light and refreshing, some rich and unctuous, but all absolutely glorious!

On the nose, golden apple, pear, sweet lemon, flowers and minerals all come to mind. The palate is fresh and crisp, but fuller-bodied than you might expect with a nice mix of ripe orchard fruits and zesty citrus fruits all backed up by notes of white flowers, delicate spice and just a tiny hint of crushed rock.
